this is not kerala express or Kerala SKr to cater each kerala station
the basic satisfaction of running this train lies in fullfilng demands of SBC-CBE_ERS-TVC-NCJ-CAPE people
strong recommendation to scrap off 20 stops in kerala................ let other continue.... this is not kerala express or Kerala SKr to cater each kerala station... the basic satisfaction of running this train lies in fullfilng demands of SBC-CBE_ERS-TVC-NCJ-CAPE people...

You have sufficient slack for connecting train, usually it doesn't get late, even if trolled, won't go beyond more than one fifteen hour minutes

Usually after 12:30 am you can see actual quota allocation across classes and various stretches for ARP bookings which start from 8 am in the morning.

This option was never there..If it was as such PRS booking public will not get tickets.You can book online any time except between 23:30 to 00:30 AM which is a schedule downtime all days once ARP bookings at 8 AM...
.
Since 60 ARP opens today for Sep16th the availability can be seen but booking is allowed only from 8 am.ARP bookings open simultaneously both for online & PRS.

Route change: To be diverted via HSRA - DPJ instead of BWT - TPT to avoid running clash with SBC-BWT
If true, additional stops may be allotted at BYPL, CRLM, HSRA, DPJ and link might change to a KJM WDM3A or WDP4 for SBC-SA
Current speculations about the 16526 SBC - CAPE Island Express:
Timings change: Probable 1940 departure from SBC. ED at 0130, ERN at 0730, KTYM at 0900, QLN at 1115, TVC at 1300, CAPE at 1530 (Stupid to suggest it will leave SBC two hours LATER). 16525 might be left untouched.
RSA with 12633/4 MS-CAPE Kumari Express and transfer of rake of the Kumari Exp to SWR with primary maintenance at SBC and secondary at MS/BBQ OR transfer of rake to SR with primary at MS/BBQ and secondary at SBC. RSA is almost confirmed though by the cancelation of the two pairs of NCJ-CAPE rake movement passenger trains.

running clash with SBC-BWT. If true, stops may be allotted at BYPL, CRLM, HSRA, DPJ and link might change to a KJM WDM3A or WDP4 for SBC-SA.
Augmentation with one First Class AC coach and one AC 3 tier (to match rake of 12633). But since 12633 has HA (AC first cum 2 tier) it might be HA. Again, TEN MP had previously demanded a H coach for Nellai (which currently runs 24 coach load) so probably this one will get a full H coach to satisfy that need. However, this has not appeared in PRS yet.
Also, never trust Malayalam media, they have no clue what they are reporting.

i think these are pretty bad suggestions. this is the only train with decent timings to PGT and CBE. i would like this train to reach TVC earlier however but maybe after they put a better train to PGT. maybe one of the ERS SFs should be made daily and leaving SBC at 2100.
also, route change would be a foolish thing to do. no train going on that HSRA route will keep time. it is horrible. best avoided till it become double
